Adults enjoy learning through playing
Leo tried game-based learning methods before – but it took a while for him to find the perfect solution:
“One of our learning partners is a big believer in learning through playing, so, before we discovered Kahoot!, we made some attempts to gamify training. The solution was far from optimal: it consumed a lot of time to print sheets for participants, install software locally on our computers, get approval from our IT for everything. Besides, I had to analyze all the results manually, instead defining winners in the real time.”
When Leo tried Kahoot! for the first time in 2016, it immediately became his go-to training tool thanks to its ease of use and flexibility. Adult professionals enjoyed learning through games just as much as school students! Starting from the very first sessions with Kahoot!, Leo got very positive feedback from the teams.
It works even if teams aren’t in the same room
Leo uses Kahoot! to train both co-located and distributed sales teams. It helps him and other trainers review how well content was learned, with a mix of easy and difficult questions, makes it easy to recap on the info, interact with the audience, answer their questions and make sure that they effectively learn.
Based on his experience, here’s what Leo thinks makes Kahoot! so helpful for trainers:
- Saves time: creating a quiz for your session only takes minutes. During the session, neither you, nor the trainees need to install or configure anything.
- Gives immediate feedback: you can see the results and immediately spot if some questions need additional explanation.
- Engages any audience: trainees pay more attention because they really want to win!
- Improves knowledge retention: the interactive format helps people remember more of the content covered in the session.
